Preserving Your Assets And Your Best Interests
It is not always easy to stand up for yourself in a divorce. Many spouses do not want to rock the boat by requesting the assets to which they are entitled.
At the Law Office of Susan A. Moch, I can serve as your advocate. For more than 35 years, I have helped Westport-area clients find their voices and stand up for themselves when ending a marriage. I will help you recover the best asset division arrangement available to you.
What Factors Impact Property Division?
Division of assets is a part of every divorce. The assets eligible for division are known as the “marital estate” or “marital property.” These assets include the assets each spouse brought into the marriage, the assets accumulated by either spouse during the marriage and the assets inherited during the marriage. Unlike community property states in which each party gets an equal share of marital property, Connecticut is an “equitable distribution” state. That means that there is no fixed blueprint for division of property.
Division of property is based on certain factors that a court must consider. For example:
- The duration of the marriage
- The cause of the divorce
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marital assets
- Each spouse’s age and health
- Each spouse’s job and earning potential
- Each spouse’s assets and debts
Because there is no set formula for division of marital assets, parties in Connecticut have flexibility in dividing assets in a way that is beneficial to their interests. It is essential to have on your side a skilled advocate and negotiator who is experienced in reviewing marital assets, analyzing those assets and creatively finding ways to divide your marital estate with an eye toward obtaining you the best results possible. I have that experience.
